In a dystopian near-future, the totalitarian and Christian-fundamentalist government of Gilead rules the former United States amidst an ongoing civil war and subjugates women, who are not allowed to work, control money, or even read. Widespread infertility due to environmental contamination has resulted in the conscription of young fertile women—called Handmaids, according to b more
...iblical precedent—who are assigned to the homes of the elite, where they must have ritualized sex with the men in order to become pregnant and bear children for those men and their wives.

Mayday

June's perseverance finally paid off on The Handmaid's Tale Season 3 Episode 13. It has been a tumultuous season, and June has made some questionable decisions, but she came through in the end. The light at the end of the tunnel finally came in the form of the plane flying overhead heading toward Canada with more than 52 children on board. I've learned throughout life that it can be hard to see the bigger picture when you are in the middle of a storm. ... more

Sacrifice

The definition of sacrifice is "an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy."  The Handmaid's Tale Season 3 Episode 12 demonstrated exactly that as June stood idly by and let Eleanor become the sacrificial lamb. It was hard to watch.  There have been a lot of scenes on this show that have been hard to swallow, but Eleanor's suicide hit hard for me. As someone who struggles with mental il... more

Liars

It's not entirely clear who the Liars are on The Handmaid's Tale Season 3 Episode 11, but there are certainly children at the center of this episode.  June's determination to save the 52 children is a very forward move for this season. June's been in quiet unrest since deciding to stay in Gilead with bursts of anger. "Liars" sees her start to propel forward, in some ways that are, perhaps, a little reckless.  The thing about June's acts of resistance is that... more

'The Handmaid's Tale' Boss on Season 3: 'June's Winning More Because She's Figured Out the Game'

The first two seasons of “The Handmaid’s Tale” had its audience experiencing the brutality of a misogynistic, dystopian regime through the eyes of the titular character, June (Elisabeth Moss). Yet at the end of the second season, she accomplished a seemingly impossible task: She got her newborn daughter out of Gilead. “She’s winning more because she’s figured out the game,” showrunner Bruce Miller tells Variety. “She’s a very patient character and, especially the way Lizzie plays her, she&rs... more

'The Handmaid's Tale' Season 3 Trailer: Elisabeth Moss Navigates An Uncertain Future

Charting new territory is nothing new for “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Last year’s sophomore season ventured beyond the confines of Margaret Atwood’s original novel, stretching into territory only vaguely hinted in the book’s pages. Now, for Season 3, the show’s central character will have to face a similar sense of uncertainty in order to survive. Elisabeth Moss returns as June, but as Hulu’s trailer for the upcoming season shows, she is far from the only person left to navigate a new reality as the former theo... more
